I went to this pub last night as I had just moved into the area. It is difficult to describe how grubby and old fashioned this place is. There are two bars one large with a few seats, a pool table and darts board and one smaller for eating in. Whilst I was in the smaller bar the landlady just came in and turned the tv onto Sky sport assuming I was a fan I suppose. I was too timid to ask her to turn it off ( I was the only one in). The decor is awful, dated and held together with dust and extraneous bits of electric cabling. There are brass objects and odd bits of crockery hanging from walls and ceilings. The landlady is quite frightening (dour is probably best description). The toilets are rank. The pint of Doombar was ok. I didn't eat there and neither would I as I just get the feeling hygiene is not the top of their priorities. The whole place needs gutting and starting again with new landlords.

I have been coming to this pub for 9yrs and have given it a rating of 9 in t.he past, but oh dear! what a dreadful experience I had last time. 24 walkers on a day trip, who will never be seen again took precedence over a family group which resulted in a wait for food of about an hour and a half. 2yr old children do not deal well with that kind of a delay. Nor do their parents who find the only loo capable of being a baby changing room full of "band equipment". No alternative was offered and the nappy change was done in the car!
The food when it did arrive was the sadest meal I've had to pay for in a very long time: under-cooked chips, raw peas and flabby, soggy batter falling off a pathetically small cod.
When we were asked 'is everything ok?' I explained my extreme displeasure with the service, food and treatment and free round of drinks was strategically offered immediately after some of the group had just bought!! And this was the first enquiry about our well being in two hours. The free round was declined and no discount was offered on the bill.
It will be some time before I return.

Nice pub in the edge of Edenbridge. Three ales on including Pride & Sambrook's "Wandle" ale. The Wandle was excellent although I'm not convinced it's "Spicy & herbaceous" as stated on Sambrook's website! Food service was a bit slow but the food was cheap and good.

Under new management and giving Marlpit Hill a real sense of community, The Swan is now full of atomosphere, charm and fun. The menu offers a good selection and the carvery leaves guests more than content and full of praise. In the winter the pub welcomes its guests with a log fire and cosy seating and come the sun, the extensive garden offers guests both sun and shade and plenty of space for children to run and play.

Nic and Steve are always warm and welcoming and they go the extra mile to ensure customers are well catered for and made to feel "right at home".

If you are passing, do drop in - you wont be disappointed.

My Local is now beginning to be the pub I always hoped it would be. I shall be going more often.
